Improve Your WordPress blog With Flash and Video players

Nur . Posted in How-To, Plugins, Themes 617 Views 3 Comments

Embedding videos in a Website  has never been easier, thanks to WordPress and its Plugins. These themes and  plugin removes the need to copy and paste “embed” code from the different video sharing sites into your posts’ body. Instead, you click the icon for a specific video site, for example, YouTube. Then all you need to provide is the URL to the video.  For example, Viper’s Video  Quicktag WordPress Plugin goes to the URL and extracts the embed code automatically.

Adding Video to your posts can really dress up the content. By using Video, you give your content a dimension that
you can’t express in plain text. Through visual imagery, you can call attention to your post and add depth to it.
The same goes for adding any  other media files to your posts and blog, e.g, Image, and Audio. Video lets you provide entertainment through moving, talking (or singing!) streaming video. Audio files let you talk to your visitors and add a personal touch. Many bloggers use video and audio to report news and to broadcast Internet radio and television shows. The possibilities are endless!

Here I am compiling a list of Plugins and WordPress Theme which already have the ability to embed these media files.

    Wow, great information. I have been copying and pasting the embed code found on sites like YouTube. The plugin you show at #4, Embeded Video, looks extremely easy to use. I’ll definitely have to give that a try. Going through the plugin page and looking at the information it does things that I do manually too, like adding a link to my videos on the video sharing sites. Thanks!

    Quick question, and not sure if you might know the answer to this. A gentleman I met claimed that the embed code coming from YouTube is actually flawed and creates a slight error when using it. He created a small program that supposedly fixed that error, but it never seemed to work right for me.

    I’ve since lost touch with him but what he told me has always stuck in the back of my mind. It’s nothing that users notice, he said, but he said when looking at logs it becomes apparent.

    Any knowledge of this?

    Regardless, I’m going to start using that plugin, but it always bugged me thinking I was generating errors without knowing it.
